Haley and her 6-Year Old Caretaker

Haley and her 6-Year Old Caretaker

Connie, one of the many selfless rescuers, posted this request…

This family was ripped off by a rescue organization that forced them to return their adopted dog because of health problems.  The dog was sent to them sickly.  They would not refund their money, nor would they trade for another dog.  Their 6 year old boy was devastated.  Heart to Heart heard about their plight and offered them a dog at cost because they spent over $1,000 in vetting on the original dog. They have no money left to fly a dog home, and we don’t have a kid friendly dog any nearer to them.  Can anyone help put this dog and her boy together?

Keith and Pat were the flying angels of the day…

When rescues like this come together within a 48hr timeframe and go perfectly, there is a reason and we can all be thankful to Him who makes it happen.  It’s not often that I get the privilege of presenting the “new member of the family” to them in person.  Usually I’m one of the “middle guys” in a multi-segment rescue.  I’ll gladly be the middle guy as long as sometimes I get to see the joy on people’s faces like I did today when they first see something that will change their lives forever.  Nathan’s 6 year-old ear to ear smile (and his parents’ as well) was something I won’t forget.  Helping animals and humans is truly what Pilots N Paws is all about and I’m glad to be a small part of it.

Best Regards, Keith

    Thank you so much for helping mend my son’s broken heart! He and Haley are so great together and we have you and H2H to thank. We will always be grateful to you for helping us and for everything else you do to help out other animals in need!

  3. Great story, thank you Heart To Heart, for helping this terrible tale have a happy ending. Mistreatment of an adopter is inexcusable, it casts a shadow of doubt on all of us. Rat Terrier ResQ applauds Heart To Heart for their actions!

    What a wonderful thing you did H2H! Pay is forward is the way to go. Rescues working together is how is should be, but sometimes there are ones that don’t feel that way. Glad your son has his furry friend. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Great praise for Pilots N Paws and for Heart To Heart rescue ( there’s an aptly named rescue ) for doing the REAL work of rescue! It’s so sad that the abusive, previous “organization” continues to profit by the suffering and misfortune of blameless animals and the wonderful people who open their hearts to them. Shame on Ratbo.. rescue for continuing to conduct “business” this way.
